The arcaplex | Horizon is a simple device for concentrating PRI, BRI and PSTN traffic onto a single PRI line to the central office.
Up to 1 PRI, 16 BRI and 32 PSTN connections are possible on the arcaplex|Horizon. Two arcaplex|Horizon units may be daisy chained to give higher levels of concentration.
The arcaplex|Horizon is a modular device which allows you to select the interface types best suited to your application.
In many countries it is possible to have a part-enabled PRI interface which will only incur rental charges for the number of channels required.
A single Primary rate ISDN (PRI) line or part-enabled PRI line can offers lower rental and installation costs per channel, and will give you additional growth potential with lower cost than adding more BRI lines. Once a part-enabled PRI line is installed you can upgrade your system by adding additional channels to the PRI line without the need for time consuming installation of BRI lines.
The arcaplex|Horizon Primary to Basic Rate or Analog Multiplexer is a standalone unit that slits a primary rate ISDN line (E1 or T1) and into multiple Basic Rate ISDN lines (S or U), Analog lines, and a sub-equipped Primary Rate ISDN line.
Each Basic Rate interface uses two B channels of the Primary Rate line. Hence an E1 PRI (30 B channels) allows up to 15 BRIs using 2 B channels and a T1 PRI (23 B channels) allows up to 11 BRIs using 2 B channels. A downstream sub-equipped PRI port allows a PBX or other equipment to be connected to the same PRI coming from the Network provider.
The Analog interfaces work independently of the BRIs and a single PRI B channel is used for each analogue interface enabled. The analogue interfaces work like regular Telco lines and provide -48V feeding, ringing, and CLI functionality.
Each BRI can support up to eight terminals. The data links are handled locally or point-to-point and point-to-multipoint links are selectable. Calls are mapped from the PRI to BRI/Analog interfaces using an MSN numbering scheme.
The arcaplex | Horizon is configured using a V24 serial interface connection to a PC. Using this connection all of the functions are controlled. Alternatively, the unit can be accessed via Telnet across a LAN or WAN using the built in Ethernet port. An internal modem option is also available for management.

arcaplex Horizon can be used to broadcast voice and data over PRI between each office location which has ISDN E1 coming in from the network provider which will then convert to BRI-ISDN or Analog
Key numbering allows you to set up the same telephone number for a group of ports within the Symphony. Each port continues to have its own unique telephone number but it can also then have a group number.
